Matthew Henry's 1 Corinthians Chapter 5 Bible commentary...
The apostle blames the Corinthians for connivance at an incestuous person; (1-8) and directs their behaviour towards those guilty of scandalous crimes. (9-13)1-8 The apostle notices a flagrant abuse, winked at by the Corinthians. Party spirit, and a false notion of Christian liberty, seem to have saved the offender from censure. Grievous indeed is it that crimes should sometimes be committed by professors of the gospel, of which even heathens would be ashamed. Spiritual pride and false doctrines tend to bring in, and to spread such scandals. How dreadful the effects of sin! The devil reigns where Christ does not. And a man is in his kingdom, and under his power, when not in Christ. The bad example of a man of influence is very mischievous; it spreads far and wide. Corrupt principles and examples, if not corrected, would hurt the whole church. Believers must have new hearts, and lead new lives. Their common conversation and religious deeds must be holy. So far is the sacrifice of Christ our Passover for us, from rendering personal and public holiness unnecessary, that it furnishes powerful reasons and motives for it. Without holiness we can neither live by faith in him, nor join in his ordinances with comfort and profit.
9-13 Christians are to avoid familiar converse with all who disgrace the Christian name. Such are only fit companions for their brethren in sin, and to such company they should be left, whenever it is possible to do so. Alas, that there are many called Christians, whose conversation is more dangerous than that of heathens!

Temptation to take part in fornication is always a danger When we think that we are immune to immorality often comes the test and we feel torn wanting to satisfy the craving of our natural bodies and the new life in the Spirit One thought can lead to other others down error road and and the natural inclinations take over Keeping our minds shielded from sin through the mind of Christ is the only way we can defeat the lusts of the flesh Thanks be to God that He has put the mind of Christ into us so we can recall his life giving words of power The cross is painful but necessary What do you think

This also is in tune with what we let influence is. Everything we see, hear, even touch has a great influence on what we think of next. The more a "little" bad influence pulls us away from the"truth",the less we recognize what bad influence is and what it can do to us as Christians.

A little evil goes a long way and has a great influence on those who are ignorant of God's Word.

prayer of beliver is power enough to save any sinner. 1cor 5:5 deliver such people for the destruction of flesh, it may be related to 1 john 5:16-17 do not pray for those whose sins is unto death.2cor 5:1 if the flesh is destroy we have an enternal one in heaven.

when we get ourselves into sins that are considered small, we might not know when we get deeply rooted in it which will eventually lead to destruction.
